PSY, Girls Generation top Forbes’s Korea List

Is PSY the Jennifer Lopez of Korea? According to Forbes, that may be true. The full list for Forbes Korea’s “2013 Power Celebrity 40” was revealed this week with PSY unsurprisingly taking the top spot. He snatches the No. 1 position from Girls’ Generation who held it for two years and now settle in at No. 2.
